Big Prawn Noodle in Johor Bahru @ Perling 北海仔虾面 ⭐⭐⭐⭐

If you like your prawn noodles with rich robust crustacean savoury stock and options for pork tail, cartilage and big 250 gram fresh sea Tiger prawns, then I recommend you 北海仔虾面 stall at Jia Qin coffee shop in Taman Perling.

北海仔虾面 prawn noodle stall is one of around 6 - 8 stalls at the busy Jia Qin coffee shop at Jalan Rawa in Taman Perling. Opened in 2015, 北海仔虾面 has built a strong following among JB foodies.

Stall holder Mr Lim hails from Butterworth, Penang hence the name 北海仔虾面 which literally means "Butterworth Boy Prawn Noodles". Mr Lim serves the Penang style of prawn mee (known as Hokkien mee over there).

On top of the standard Penang prawn mee serving, there are optional add ons of pork intestine, pork tail, cartilage, pig skin, sea prawn and large sea prawn (around 250 gram each).

Each of us had a bowl of prawn noodle each.

Each serving comes with two prawns about the size of our forefinger.

We added on cartilage and pig tail which are my favourite cuts.

北海仔虾面's stock is made by boiling pork socket bones and three different types of prawn heads. The prawn heads infuse deep layers of savouriness into the stock. The dissolved tendon, cartilage and marrow from the socket bone impart body to the stock. This basic stock is already sufficiently flavourful for me - the moderate body soup tastes prawny savoury with mild underlying spiciness.

Stir in the sambal chili and the savoury umami kick and body zoomed to stratospheric delicious levels.

We indulged in a 250 gram big sea prawn for RM28.

The Tiger prawn was fresh and meaty. The Tiger prawn meat was tender, crunchy, sweet with underlying subtle sea brininess.

4-Star (out of 5).

👍 At this any price point, I can't think of a better place than JB Taman Perling's 北海仔虾面 stall to indulge in prawn noodles with rich robust prawn stock and large fresh sea Tiger prawns.
